Glazed Chocolate Chip Brownies

Shortly after we married, my husband asked if I would bake up a pan of brownies for him to take to work. I said, "Sure—I have the best recipe." He liked to cook, too, and said hehad the best recipe. To settle the matter, we each baked a batch and let his co-workers decide. My recipe won!

    My kids and their friends loved these! I loved the ease of the recipe - and admit to eating several myself. Very tasty.

    These are the best brownies I've ever made. I used a dark metal baking pan so I decreased the temp by 25 degrees. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly as written and the brownies were absolutely wonderful. I can't think of a reason to seek another brownie recipe!

    These are very good and surprisingly not too rich. I'd have added some chopped pecans or walnuts to the brownie batter, but my daughter does not care for nuts in baked goods. Go ahead and use all of the second half of the bag of chocolate chips in the frosting.I like to try different brownie recipes, but this is one I'm sure I'll make again.
